Children today are soft. Yeah, that includes your kid too. Today we strap helmets and kneepads on our children hoping they wont fall down and hurt themselves. Big fuckin deal! Thats what kids do; fall. Who the fuck is your kid that they are too important to get hurt? Falling down is a metaphor for life. You fall down; learn to pick yourself up. When we try and protect our children from simply falling on the ground we are taking away thier ability to teach themselves self-reliance. We have come a long way in the past century; and not in a good way either. Remember when a 12 yr old could milk a cow, shoot a rabbit for dinner, work in a sweatshop or coal mine and still find time for homework? What happened to these kids? Today's kids suck. They are soft and bitch about everything under the sun. My son just turned 5 and I noticed because his mother spoils him, he has become dependent. I am currently working to remedy that. He needs to learn to do for himself and hopefully he'll thank me when he's older.

Do your kids a favor. Don't kiss thier boo-boos, don't use training wheels and let them eat thier Halloween candy dammit!

AMEN Charlie!! Our society is so concerned with making sure nobody scrapes their knee or gets their feelings hurt that we're breeding an entire generation of Staypuft Marshmellow Men.

The kids aren't only physically soft, they are emotionally soft, as well. I was informed by my daughter that she doesn't know who wins games in her phys. ed. class because they don't keep score. That way no one is a "loser". Its too bad real life doesn't work that way.
